I nominate this for a vault release.
This is a truly great show during a very interesting time (that to me starts with the Fillmore East/Cafe Au Go Go shows in September, where the band seems to rejuvenate). this is a well-played and a well-sung show, which for '69 is a major plus.
What's great about this show is that EVERY SONG is solid. All the newer songs show improvement from their previous versions; "Easy Wind" is slower than you might normally think of, but it's way more together than the last few versions we have available. Along with "Workingman's Dead" material, this is one of the earliest China->Riders ,and it's great. A fantastic version of "That's It For the Other One", everything you'd want out of an "Other One"
All adds up to a great show that you just wish we had in better quality. This is a very good attempt at cleaning up the hiss that's on the other source! I would think this is definitely a show that could be a contender for a legitimate release: every song is release quality, no embarrassing vocals, excellent playing.....and in dire need of a clean-up job!
PS:Jerry sings "cuz I'm hunting on top of the world." for some reason, pretty funny.
PSS: This was Halloween....I'd love to hear from anyone who was at this show!
PSSS: I give it four stars for playing, the audio is what it is. I can deal with it, it's certainly not the worse I've ever heard!
